August 24, 2009 – 1:04pm Entropy php5 with APC …

I decided to finally install some sort of PHP accelerator on my development machine to see if I could speed things up a bit.

My first attempt was to use PECL to install APC, but that didn’t work, so I had to rely on these instructions. They worked perfectly with my setup: OS X 10.5.8, entropy PHP Version 5.2.9 (release 7) running x86_64.

    Is there a compelling reason not to use php and their apc?

  2. Scott Meves says:

    @jon, Not really. I already had the entropy PHP package installed and just found that link on my first google search! Macports is a great option, especially if I were starting fresh. I’ve been really happy with the entropy installation and I didn’t even think to see if other installation methods for APC would work with it.

    I should also note: I haven’t noticed any speed difference now that apc is installed :p
